How can I capping the CPU usage of processes

Hi, Somtimes I need to run tasks that hog the CPU.

Rendering a big image/ Making a new kernel etc.

Not when I do this there are some apps that dont run very well-

I was wondering if there is any way to run the process so it only uses a % of the cpu-

Like a:
Make PID 1243 and all its children only use 33% of the CPU.

I know nice puts it at a lower priority but the process will still hog the CPU if nothing else is running.
